Do you eat it because it's healthy, or do you eat it because it tastes good? I've always wondered about this. I must admit, I don't really like vegetables. I only eat it because I know it's good for me. As for the taste itself, I hate it, and some more than others. What about you?

I LOVE VEGETABLES! Vegetable salads with Mango Cream Sauce or with Fruit Vinaigrette is heaven to me! Oh what I wouldn't give to have vegetable salad for dinner EVER single night... but that's expensive to buy, or tedious to make for myself. I think that string beans is the only vegetable that I'm not a fan of...oh wait, I also don't like green peas. I also like cooked vegetables :D they taste good and they make me feel so clean. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

Haha good for you then! You know, I actually like green peas, but I not in it's mushy form (definitely hate that), but when it's in the snacl for, hard and salty. hahah, but I think that qualifies more as junk food than vegetable LOL!

When I was younger, I didn't like vegetables. I think being forced to eat vegetables "because they're good for you" didn't help. But as I grew older and decided on my own to try veggies again, I like them. I like broccoli, carrots, cucumbers, and green leafy vegetables. I like mixed veggies and once in a while, I find myself munching on baby carrots. Ampalaya (bitter melon in English) is still one of my mortal enemies though.

As a child, I was also made to eat veggies a lot "because it's healthy", and I think it made me hate veggies even more LOL. These days, I think it's pretty much the same, although minus the pouting haha. I still don't like veggies, except probably broccoli on some occasions, but I do try to eat them more. I guess I realized that having a predominantly carnivorous diet would not help me at all LOL!

Hello mymelodake. When I was young, I didnt like vegetables because of the taste but, now vegetables are my favorite food. I like eating vegetables because they taste good and they are healthy to eat.

I don't particularly enjoy vegetables as a rule. I mostly will eat frozen broccoli or canned corn. I will eat other vegetables because they are good for me. The broccoli I enjoy with butter and a little bit of chicken bouillon mixed in with the boiling water.

There are some vegetables I really like to eat, like broccolli, asparagus, lettuces (all types - butterhead, iceberg, romaine),aubergines. There are some that I don't like, so I would avoid, like pumpkins, celery.

I don't like eating vegetables. But I do eat some because we need to, for our health. Sometimes I even prefer boiling the vegetables, and drinking it. Rather than chewing vegetables.

I love veggies! There is nothing better in the summer than cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes from the garden cut up and dipped into some buttermilk ranch dressing! I also like carrots and all sorts of beans and everything in between! I love my veggies! The one's that I do not care for are few and far between. I do not really like cauliflower nor brussel sprouts. Those are about the only two that I can think of though. I am a veggie person!

Most vegetables I eat because its healthy. There are only a countable few which taste good and I eat for that reason alone. I have turned to vegetables mostly because of health reason.I do not like veggies much otherwise. Same like you.
